Subject: Very Matter of Fact
This would have been a good thing for me to do as a serviceman. I definitely could have been trainable for this job. And to think I spent 5 years in Ontario all for nothing.

Not my favorite Armed Forces film,though. I preferred the one where they shoot mercuric chloride up the guy's schmedrick.

Subject: It's A Reel Job and Nobody Dies
Did George W. Bush work as Head Projectionist for the Air National Guard while he was in Alabama for a year to get his teeth cleaned? One day we may get all the facts.

This film definitively uncovers the weighty responsibilities of handling the AQ-2A1 Projector, 2135H Lubricating Fluid, and 100% Grain Alcohol.

Subject: Overtraining
The big question is: who set up the projector for the people so they could watch the film to learn to set up the projector?
My recruiter lied to me. There WAS a job in the Air Force for operating a movie projector.

Subject: How exciting is this?
From the 'I can't believe I watched the whole thing' department, comes this. It's dry, but it's an interesing historical artifact though, given it's an army training film about setting up projectors.
